I am mexican and these are not at authentic at all, however they are nice. But salsa is never optional, is the main ingredient.

Just wanted to put this bit of info out there for everyone, anything with Cheddar cheese is not authentically Mexican. If you want to reduce the fat in this dish you can just put a little bit of butter in a pan, then slightly toast the tortillas in the pan. It comes out just as good with less fat. Just a suggestion.

I don't know whether this is authentic or not; all I do know is that this breakfast was really good! I added green onion, a little enchilada sauce and some shredded pepper jack cheese. Great Giamom!

Good but not great. To make it much more authentic fry the bacon and then use the bacon grease for the beans. Personally I prefer to cook/boil dry pinto beans then mash them up while frying them in bacon grease just like they do in Mexico. If you don't want to prepare your own beans then use canned pinto beans instead. Anytime I make beans for friends they all rave about the taste. Try it and see if it doesn't improve the flavor. I also prefer a green salsa verde (tomatillo sauce) and jalisco queso instead of the red salsa and cheddar cheese.

I make this at home often. It's very good. Different flavor salsas are fun to experiment with too. (and I also use fat free re-fried beans... they taste great)

As others have said these are not authentic by any means but who cares since my husband loved them! He even made more the next morning with the leftover ingredients and surprised me with breakfast in bed! I added diced tomato lime juice and cilantro to the refried beans and heated it on the stove. Also you can just use cooking spray to "fry" the tortillas and it's just as good but less fattening. Very delicious. EDIT: These have become a regular at our house and my husband goes out of his way to make them!

I see nothing authenic about this recipe. Scratch the beans scratch the bacon - only use corn tortillas eggs and fresh homemade salsa rojo(made from dried NM red chilis water salt and garlic). Maybe a little queso blanco on top...

These were good for Americanized Huevos Rancheros but nothing like authentic. One thing they need is a good ranchera sauce (not salsa) but the recipe I tried from here was not very good so I'll keep looking.

8/20 I made this for Husband's brunch and wanted it to be a bit more substantial so I doubled the eggs and bacon sprinkled with lots of extra-sharp Cheddar and Mexican cheeses topped with jarred sliced jalapenos and served it with salsa and black beans. This was quick and easy and very filling. Thanks giamom! 8/25 Made these again today but spread the refried beans over flour tortillas added scrambled egg bacon and salsa and rolled them up. Really good!
